Wow.

I wonder why he didn't floor it and break the gate off. Minor damage to 1 car would have been preferable.

This happened just south of Dallas and the truck driver had to stop because of the stop light at the intersection about fifty feet beyond where the camera sees (these cameras were installed to catch people going around the crossing arms). The vehicles we can see in the camera were stopped behind the railroad crossing, but there are others, out of sight of the camera and in front of the vehicles you can see, waiting on the light to change. When it changed the truck was stopped waiting on a vehicle in front of him to make a left turn. While waiting the light changed to red and he couldn't go. When he realized what was happening the cross traffic on Beltline was too heavy to get across and he had no where to go. Did you happen to notice what kind of railroad cars those were right behind the engine? They were filled with ammonia nitrate. This could have been a whole lot worse than some cars getting damaged. Fortunately no one was hurt. Joe it came to a halt quick because the engine derailed.
